Please see the Services Offered section of our website for a complete list of available services for residents in Burbank Sanitary District.


Recycling & Disposal
Garbage, recyclable materials and yard trimmings collected in Burbank Sanitary District are brought to the
GreenWaste Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in San Jose for processing. 

Recyclable materials are sorted on the single-stream recyclables processing line at the MRF where they are separated by material type, baled and shipped to market to be given new life as a recycled product.
Garbage is processed in a separate building at the MRF where all recyclable materials are moved over to the single-stream processing line and the organic materials recovered are sent to Z-Best Composting Facility in Gilroy where they are composted.    
Yard trimmings are also sent to Z-Best where they are screened and further processed into co-generation fuel, composted and high-quality soil amendment.

Only the non-recyclable and non-compostable residuals remaining are transported to a landfill for disposal.
